Trained musicians can make for bad audience members. We are the ones with folded arms in the back of the club ingesting every note into our internal musical database and can be all too quick to not be impressed. Yes, I am sad to admit it. This internal monitor, or “the critic in you” as a musician friend once put it, can also work in the opposite way. Sometimes you hear music so striking and harmonious, it sinks into a happy place and serves as a reminder as to why you decided to play music in the first place!
The Made Up Music library, MUM for short and a new addition to the 5 Alarm catalog, has a wide reaching appeal which is bound to impress the folks in the front rows and especially those in the back of the club with folded arms! The composition and performance team consisting of Ray Russell, Ralph Salmons and Rik Walton have resumes that read like the roster at The Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame. Hmmmmm…..let me see. Have you ever heard of some of these people? David Bowie, Art Garfunkle, Tina Turner, Phil Collins, Robert Plant, Van Morrison, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Jeff Beck, Elvis Costello, Alice Cooper, Alanis Morisette, Jeff Beck, Quincy Jones, Bjork, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Queen, Burt Bacharach…..Me either. I kid, I kid! The caliber of musicality showcased in MUM is humbling to say the least!
OK, enough with the name dropping. The music definitely speaks for itself!
